ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY
|Alexander is having a bad day. To be honest, it’s a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But, everybody has those. This delightful adaptation of Judith Viorst’s popular book sets Alexander’s trying life to music and brings to stage one of America’s feistiest characters. Alexander’s day starts with gum in his hair and ends with—yuck!—kissing on TV.

The stories become fables when Monroe surprises everyone by supplying the morals. The troupe then performs some of the best of Aesop’s fables.|
